Celebrating 75th Anniversary of Disney’s BAMBI
On Blu-ray JUNE 6, 2017
Summer is the time for more outdoor activities, learning and playing with friends. I remember my childhood in the country where friends were scarce, yet opportunities for creative play were abundant. We did not have any checklists or internet. Using our dreams and ideas about how any project should look like, we built bridges over muddy water streams, fed ants sweet sugar, explored the insect world by the pond and jumped off tree branches. Life was full adventure, and life was good.
This year, we are celebrating Bambi’s 75th year in this world. How many generations do we have here that grew up with Bambi? Three, four, five? What I do know is that my children love Bambi today as the kids who grew up with it in the last century. Yep, the 19th century saw the release of BAMBI on August 21st, 1942. It was the time when the world was fighting fascism. Yet Walt Disney was developing his impressive animation classics at his studio.
This summer, do encourage your kids to spend more time outside and play their games, implement their ideas. To boost their arsenal to motivate to think creatively, here are some incredible Bambi-themed recipes, backyard camp checklist and backyard camp-out ideas to add to your children’s!

BAMBI animation has influenced the Disney animators in many ways. One of the best characteristics in the Bambi movie is utilizing the background that is not very busy with trees and plants, yet it allows to present each character with its colors, tiny details and unique look. Such backgrounds used in Bambi movie are called impressionistic. These background techniques are found in today’s MOANA, LION KING, MULAN, TANGLED, BIG HERO 6,

The backgrounds were created by the legendary Tyrus Wong who lived 106 and had created a magical collection within the Disney animation movies. An immigrant boy of 9-years-old who came to the United States with his parents for a better life, learned calligraphy from his father. Later, he started to improvise with his brush work on newspaper and any piece of paper that can be used for painting. The boy used minimal brush strokes to create worlds of nature and animals to evoke feelings and emotions. His Disney backgrounds he’d created for BAMBI have become a classic art and style to be used in later Disney animation movies.
